The Nokia 3.1 is an underwhelming phone in every way. From its low-tier specs, to its mediocre camera, software and battery life are the only things HMD got right on this phone.

The new Nokia 3.1 is a well-made enhancement of last year’s model. Its highlights are the bright display, its full-fledged dual-SIM capabilities, its very accurate GPS, and the fact that it is running Android One. Considering the device’s low price, it looks like a great deal to us despite its flaws...

Its slow performance and lack of a fingerprint sensor are disappointing, but you get good Android One so...

Nothing on the Nokia 3.1 is set to blow you away, but it seems to be a solidly built phone with an interesting design and suitable specs. Plus the price looks to be affordable as well.
